Ahead of the New Year’s Eve celebrations, the giant, seven-foot-tall numerals for “2024” are being placed high above Times Square. The numerals will sit atop One Times Square, officially completing the “2-0-2-4” sign that will light up at midnight on December 31.

The four numerals use a total of 588 energy efficient LED bulbs; the numeral “2” contains 145 bulbs, the “0” contains 164 bulbs, and the “4” contains 134 bulbs
